Psalm 20

1 A melody of David.
May Jehovah answer you in the day of distress. May the name of the God of Jacob protect you.

2 May he send you help from the holy place And sustain you from Zion.

3 May he remember all your gift offerings; May he accept with favor your burnt offering.

4 May he grant you the desires of your heart And give success to all your plans.

5 We will shout joyfully over your acts of salvation; We will lift our banners in the name of our God. May Jehovah fulfill all your requests.

6 Now I do know that Jehovah saves his anointed one. He answers him from his holy heavens With great salvation by his right hand.

7 Some rely on chariots and others on horses, But we call on the name of Jehovah our God.

8 They have collapsed and fallen, But we have risen up and been restored.

9 O Jehovah, save the king! He will answer us in the day we call for help.
